Thanks to those that have been in contact wanting to help out with this.

The suggested original meeting point seems to be a bit of a nightmare proposal, so Alan1310 has suggested an alternative.

I'll let everyone know of any updates or changes once I've received a reply  :)

There is now a new meeting point for this, full details to be published nearer the time - the new venue proposed by Alan1310 was accepted as a good idea  8).

I've replied to those that contacted me earlier, if I've missed you out of the "update email"  just let me know  :).

Just a reminder, the Cambridge magazine article is this coming Tuesday.

I've received confirmation from Sam, the journalist, that it is all still on. Here is an extract from his email;

Does anyone have any period accessories or special editions, like those yellow rain capes and warning flags, or the ultra-rare Lotus JPS-liveried version that Ayrton Senna drove round Brands Hatch as a publicity stunt? Doesn't matter if you haven't, we've got photos if not. A brochure might be useful if anyone's got one, or the hoover maintenance and servicing guide and Rospa 'safe C5 driving' booklet, just to add a bit of period flavour.
 
Looking forward to sampling the 'revolution in personal transport' and giving it a fresh appraisal.


I've replied that nobody knows the whereabouts of the JPS c5's, so we've very little chance of sorting that out by Tuesday  ;D

I reckon we've got the rest pretty much covered though  8)

If anyboy else does want to tag along we will be at ;
 Newmarket Road Park & Ride
 Newmarket Road
 Cambridge
 CB5 8AA

Hoping to be there around 10am.

This has been postponed until February, another victim of the snow  ::)

This year hasn't started off so great...almost as bad as the football fixtures  :P

weathers perhaps more reliable than a Toyota  ;D

I'm all packed up and ready to go, but the sodding "tom tom" doesn't recognise the postcode for the park and ride location  ::).

So I've entered the code for Cambridge Airport instead - close enough to where I want to end up and also a big enough landmark to head for  ;D

See you there !

Today was a top laugh, more details to follow , but when I got home Angie told me there was an email waiting for me from a local radio station. They had been receiving phone calls all day about c5's driving around Cambridge and want to interview me  8)

Thanks to Plod, Ray and Alan for helping make today such a laugh - not forgetting the guys from Sports and Classic Car magazine for treating us to a  top notch lunch at the Backstreet Bistro (highly recommended  ;D)

Some piccies from the day;

First off - Alan1310 ;


..followed by Alan giving Sam a few pointers on controlling a c5  ;D


..Ray and Sam chatting about all things C5;


..a quick stop at Comet where we met one of the sales staff who remembered selling C5's brand new in 1985 from their previous site;


..a quick stop outside one of Sir Clives favourite pubs;






I didn't take anymore ,so hopefully Ray,Plod or Alan have some more to add  :)

A really good day out !

Hi there.

I bumped into your photo shoot on Bridge Street yesterday morning. Pretty cool to see four C5s together :-) The photographer took some pictures of my son admiring them. Do I gather correctly that the article will be in Classic & Sports Car Magazine? Do you know which edition?

Hi fanf

Thanks for dropping in and saying hello - glad you enjoyed seeing the c5's out and about  :)

I should get some more details soon from Sam about when the article is to be published, any updates will be added here so check back every now and then for the latest info. The good news is that Sam and the photographer were both pleased with how the day turned out and the quality of the photo's, which l think bodes well for a good article  8)
